Gurugram, September 19
In a shocking incident, a lawyer killed himself after allegedly shooting his father dead at Dhanwapur village in Laxman Vihar area on Saturday evening.
The police reached the spot, and found the lawyer’s body lying near a wall of the room, while the body of his father was on the bed.
The police took the bodies into custody.
They said, that it was prima facie, and that it appeared to be the deed of the lawyer owing to the ongoing dispute, though all angles are being probed.
“Investigations, so far, hint that the lawyer first shot his father, who had two bullet wounds, and then himself with a single bullet. The father was a retired employee of Delhi police. The family has filed no complaint or hinted at any foul play, we are, however, investigating,” said Assistant Commissioner of Police, Crime, Preet Pal Singh Sangwan.
The deceased was identified as 35-year-old Ravinder and his 62-year-old father Rajbir, residents of Dhanwapur village.
Ravinder, along with his entire family, lived at their village, while his father was residing at a PG, which is located in Laxman Vihar colony.
On Saturday evening, Ravinder—who is practising in Gurgram court—reached the PG which are closed now. Only his father was living there.
Cops said, that it seemed like they had a heated argument between them, and Ravinder ended up shooting his father and himself.
Police have recovered a few bullets, and shells with the revolver from the spot.
“We have contacted family and Manjit, the other son of the deceased, Rajbir, reached on spot. We have kept the bodies in the mortuary, and a post-mortem will be conducted tomorrow. In preliminary investigations, it seems like the result of a family dispute, and an FIR will be registered after receiving the complaint,” said SHO of Sector 9 police station, Ashok Dagar.
